HLTAID015 - Provide advanced resuscitation and oxygen therapy

Currently, the newest and most up to date standard for resuscitation and oxygen therapy is HLTAID015. Set by the government as an industry standard, FirstAidPro’s HLTAID015 Provide advanced resuscitation and oxygen therapy replaces the now outdated HLTAID007 course with updated content and modern skills training. The course is specifically designed for medical and health professionals for whom oxygen therapy in complex emergencies is part of their official role.

HLTAID015 is an advanced course requiring a fair degree of existing first aid knowledge. All participants must previously have completed a HLTAID011 Provide First Aid course, as the knowledge and skills from that training are assumed knowledge for HLTAID015.

FirstAidPro is a registered training organisation in Australia (RTO: #40407). All the training we provide follows the government standards for first aid training and is fully accredited and nationally recognised. The skills and knowledge taught in our training courses are in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) standards, as well as those of Safe Work Australia and various other national peak clinical bodies.

Much of the training we provide at FirstAidPro is very hands-on and practical, and the Advanced Resuscitation and Oxygen Therapy course is no exception. Our training environment is immersive, fully supportive, and the course is delivered by highly qualified and experienced professional trainers. The course format provides space and opportunity for students to attempt tasks and ask questions, letting them benefit from our trainers’ practical, real-world experience. When it comes to learning CPR and oxygen therapy in an interacting and engaging way, you’re not going to find better!

As part of the course, students will trained in the following areas:

  • CPR (Cardiopulmonary resuscitation)
  • AED use (Automated external defibrillator)
  • Assessing vital signs (respiration, pulse, oxygen saturation)
  • Basic airway adjuncts
  • The “Five rights”
  • Safe administration of oxygen (legal requirements, correct use, cleaning, sterilisation and storage of oxygen equipment)

HLTAID007 is now HLTAID015

The previous standard in this area – HLTAID007 Provide advanced resuscitation – has now been outdated. Originally established as a training standard by the National Register on Vocational Education and Training (aka training.gov.au), this standard has now been superseded by the new HLTAID015 course. The new course should be acceptable in all contexts where HLTAID007 was previously required – even where your workplace has older reference material that specifically requires HLTAID007 training.

This new, updated standard includes the following certification as part of the training:

  • HLTAID009 – Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) (previously HLTAID001)
  • HLTAID015 – Provide advanced resuscitation and oxygen therapy (previously HLTAID007)

Get your Advanced Resuscitation certificate faster

The most common way to do our Provide advanced resuscitation and oxygen therapy course is our half-day, face-to-face class. This is provided in a single 5 hour block (generally from 9am till around 2pm in the afternoon, depending on the date of the course).

The training will include the following components:

  • Trainer-led demonstrations on the use of key equipment and skills and techniques used in resuscitation and oxygen therapy.
  • The chance to practise with the equipment, techniques and skills used in resuscitation, assisted and supervised by the trainer and including the opportunity to ask questions.
  • A variety of practical assessments, including role-plays, observations, class debriefs, and written and verbal incident reports.

There will be some prior reading required to do the training – all of which will be provided to you well in advance of your course date.

The HLTAID015 Provide advanced resuscitation and oxygen therapy offered by FirstAidPro is the most interactive course of its type on the market. The training is strongly practical and hands-on, and all assessments take place during the training. Once the course is complete, you can be holding your certificates in your hand within a day.

Advanced Resuscitation Training – Same Day Certificates

Completing the Advanced Resuscitation and Oxygen Therapy course will provide you with official certification in the following training modules:

  • HLTAID009 – Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
  • HLTAID015 – Provide advanced resuscitation and oxygen therapy

These certificates are recognised Australia-wide and acceptable for any professional role requiring certification in those training units. The HLTAID015 certificate is valid for a full three years from the date of issue, while CPR training is valid for 12 months (as recommended by the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC).

The total cost for the HLTAID015 Provide advanced resuscitation and oxygen therapy course is only $120, including all course materials and training resources. This course can sometimes be even lower, depending on daily deals. In addition to this, if you manage to find an equivalent training course available for a lower cost, we’ll match it!

HLTAID015 Provide advanced resuscitation and oxygen therapy runs at various dates and times throughout the week, but most regularly from 9am to 2pm. Because the course covers a large amount of content, the trainer will normally close and lock the doors at the precise starting time listed for the course. As such, it’s recommended that participants make sure they arrive 15 minutes early to avoid missing out. Latecomers may find themselves locked out and required to reschedule their training to another date.

Requirements for enrolment

To take part in HLTAID015 Provide advanced resuscitation and oxygen therapy training, there are some criteria you’ll need to meet.

First, the course isn’t available to children under high-school age – you must be at least 14 years of age to take part, and if you’re under 18, you must have signed consent from a parent or guardian to participate.

You must also have completed a standard HLTAID011 Provide First Aid course. This need not have been a FirstAidPro course but must be a properly accredited HLTAID011 training course from a registered RTO. This is not optional, as the Advanced Resuscitation and Oxygen Therapy training builds on those skills as a base.

The course also requires some physical activity – particularly the CPR component. To be eligible to do the course, you must be physically able to do the following:

  • Perform at least 2 minutes of uninterrupted single rescuer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) (5 cycles of both compressions and ventilations) on an adult manikin placed on the floor
  • Perform at least 2 minutes of uninterrupted single rescuer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) (5 cycles of both compressions and ventilations) on an infant resuscitation manikin placed on a firm surface
  • Operate an automated external defibrillator (AED) to deliver at least one shock

A Covid-safe program

FirstAidPro works hard to ensure the health, safety and welfare of all participants. To this end, we do our best to follow all relevant government standards for Covid 19 safety. If you participate in one of our courses, you’ll need to respect the following Covid-19 safety measures:

  • Sign-in sheets for participants
  • Maintaining safe social distance, where practical.
  • Personal protective equipment (PPE), including face masks.
  • Equipment and materials being regularly cleaned and sterilised.

We also request any participants who are unwell – particularly those suffering from any type of flu-like symptoms – not to attend. If that occurs, just get in touch with us to reschedule your training to another date (at no cost to you).

Your USI Number

The current government regulations require that anyone studying any form of accredited Vocational Education and Training (VET) needs to have a Unique Student Identifier or USI number and provide this number to their trainer. These can be obtained quickly and easily (and free of charge) by visiting the USI website and applying for a number. Your USI number is unique to you. All accredited VET courses you study will be associated with that number – it’s a little like a Tax File Number used for training.

FirstAidPro cannot provide this number for you – you need to apply for it yourself and then provide it to us before your training can commence.

Training Format

Our Advanced Resuscitation and Oxygen Therapy course is a blend of both theory and practical. Students will get a healthy mix of both practical, hands-on skills training and vital theoretical knowledge in class. The assessments – both theory and practical – all take place as part of the class – there’s no exam on a subsequent date, and a qualified trainer will be on hand at all times to assist and answer questions.

After the day’s training, provided students have completed all assessment tasks successfully, they will be officially certified – with certificates available within one business day.

Advanced Resuscitation of the Newborn Infant

The Advanced Resuscitation and Oxygen Therapy course doesn’t just teach how to work with adults – you’ll also learn how to assist a child or even an infant. You’ll be taught how to apply DRSABCD protocol and provide CPR to people of any age in a medical emergency.

Why do I need Advanced Resuscitation and Oxygen Therapy?

There are many professional roles where it’s critical to know how you assist a casualty suffering from critical breathing difficulties or hypoxemia. These conditions are far beyond the scope of any kind of conventional first aid. They often deal with equipment not commonly available to the general public – such as the use and maintenance of emergency oxygen equipment, which can be dangerous in untrained hands.

The HLTAID015 Provide advanced resuscitation and oxygen therapy course provides the skills needed to provide aid in these situations. So if you’re working in a professional role requiring you to provide such aid, this training is a must-have!

What other training courses does First Aid Pro offer?

FirstAidPro offers many other first aid related training courses in addition to HLTAID015. Some are complete courses designed to provide professional-grade first aid training, while others are refreshers or supplemental training – such as Manual Handling or Mental Health First Aid (MHFA). Have a look below to see some of the training packages we have on offer.

Some of these courses are also the updated versions of older, well-known training standards. Older reference material may refer to and possibly require you to complete some of these older training courses – many of which are no longer available. If you have a professional or official role requiring you to do any of the following training courses, FirstAidPro can help. We offer the current course that replaces these older courses.
